Stephen Starr’s Fishtown “Bier Garten” Bringing In Large Trees For Courtyard

Construction has sped up today at the site of Stephen Starr’s Fishtown “Bier Garten” on Frankford Avenue between Girard and Thompson. Heavy machinery and large–very large, in fact–trees are on site as construction workers tell us they’re working on the much anticipated restaurant’s court yard.┬áNow we don’t know a whole lot about trees in general, but we do know that buying and shipping trees that big can’t be cheap. I guess Mr. Starr’s got a lot in store for his newest baby, but, then again, he’s always big on style. Can’t wait to see this place up and running! —Conrad Benner
